Fragonard was founded in 1926 by a perfumer named Eugene Fuchs in Grasse, the French town renowned as the perfume capital of the world since the 18th century. Home to some of the oldest perfumeries in the business, Grasse’s climate is ideal for growing delicate flowers that are some of the most in demand natural perfume ingredients. Fuchs named his company as a tribute to the famous Fragonard family of Grasse, which included 18th century perfumer and glove-maker Francoise Fragonard and his son, the famous Rococo painter Jean-Honore Fragonard.
